Bottom Line: Sticking with Cable Holds Your Business Back - Switch to Fiber

Make the switch to fiber to stay competitive in today's fast-paced, data-heavy world.

switch to fiber

We know the decision about internet service can be a complex one, but for most small businesses the choice comes down to just a handful of service types. If you’re still stuck on cable (or another first-gen alternative), it’s time to investigate whether you have access to a fiber optic connection through one of the Internet Service Providers (ISPs) service at your business location.

Because here’s the bottom line: sticking with cable can hold your business back. Consider all the ways that cable could cause you problems:

  • Cable is far slower than fiber

  • Cable is less reliable

  • Upload speeds with cable are drastically lower than the (already lower) download speeds

  • No such thing as a dedicated cable connection: your actual speeds depend on what others on your node are doing

  • Cable is an aging technology that few ISPs continue to invest in

If you're like most, your business environment is competitive — more so today than at any point in the past. You can’t afford to fall behind the competition.

An old, less reliable, slower internet connection runs the risk of putting you behind.

Is There Fiber Optic Internet Near Me?

Availability is the big question when it comes to fiber. We’ll be honest: while fiber is the future, not every customer has made the transition, because some of them don’t have access to fiber yet. The good news is that fiber access is rapidly expanding, thanks to the tireless efforts of ISPs to build out the necessary infrastructure.
